Analysts at Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ) provides a list of the key economic events of note in Asia next week.

Key Quotes:

“AU:  Another relatively quiet week for data, with the early building blocks of GDP in focus. We expect construction work done will continue to decline, albeit at a slower rate of 0.4% q/q.  Following two quarters of decline, we expect Q3  private capex  to rise modestly (0.3%), driven by an improvement in mining. For the AUD, the global growth pulse, and Central Bank speeches are likely to be a bigger focus.

NZ:  The key release for  the week will be the  ANZ Business Outlook. With the RBNZ hitting pause at the last meeting, a better result is needed to justify its view that past policy actions are starting to bear fruit. The recent outperformance of the NZD will be contingent on a reasonable result.  

CH:  We expect  the November  PMIs  to show that the Chinese industrial sector is in contractionary territory, while the service sector stabilises at lower levels.  

HK:  On Sunday, Hong Kong is scheduled to hold district council elections, the first citywide vote since protests broke out more than five months ago.”
